TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Pima Animal Care Center (PACC) is taking part in an "Empty the Shelter" challenge.

The $100K Challenge is a contest in which 50 shelters across the country compete to break their own records saving the lives of animals

PACC was selected as one of those shelters and is competing for a total of $600,000 in prize grants.

PACC needs help from the Southern Arizona community to meet their goals and win the 2014 ASPCA competition.

The goal is to get 5,000 pets adopted from June through August.

PACC and KGUN9 have teamed up up again and will feature at least one friendly pet that is up for adoption each day.

The PACC shelter is located at 4000 North Silverbell Road.

Today's featured animals:

  • TOM: ID#A487894 is 7 years old and everyone's favorite senior. He has lots to say and wants to get out and enjoy his life. He loves walks, soft beds, and cuddle time.
  • SNOOKI: ID#A490813 is just a year old and prides herself on being a princess. She expects the best food, love, and toys.
  • DUNE: ID#A491236 is just year old and is quite the handsome guy. He loves playing, exploring and a good game of tug-o-war.
